Today is the beginning of another decade in my life. Last weekend my sisters and their husbands traveled with my husband and I to Asheville, NC for an early celebration. One evening we decided to have an impromptu birthday party. During the festivities I was asked what my goals were in the next ten years. Without thinking, I said the first thing that came to mind. I want to do something that matters. I don't know where that came from. Maybe it was the two martinis, followed by several glasses of wine, or possibly just the emotion of turning another decade older. Regardless, the next morning the thought was still with me. I had rejected all of the ideas my siblings suggested the prior evening, but found I couldn't come up with any noble ideas of my own. Every idea I have seems to be restricted by the amount of money necessary to implement it, my circumstances or by my plain lack of skills to do the thing that I have envisioned.
What are your dreams? If money, skills or your circumstances were not the issue. What matters to you and what would you do?
